Intricate Smuggled Pharmaceuticals
Many individuals may not afford to buy drugs or other medication from the pharmaceuticals store thus are forced to buy medicine which have been stolen for less amount. There has been a lot of smuggling of drugs to many developing countries and many countries have their officers at the borders who are very alert about the vice and are trying as much as they can to eradicate the vice.
Pharmacies are smuggled from the manufacturing firms and passed through borders where special roads where the immigration officers are not available. The drugs that are smuggled not do not look any different from those that are made at the manufacturing firms because they were made by the same machines and the chemicals used are the same.
Those who do the pharmacy smuggling know their art and have learned how to move the drugs from one country o the other and they find it very easy and convenient. Pharmacies drugs smuggling is very rampant in many developing countries and many manufacturers have tried to use authorized stockist but the smuggling still persist in that there are more people out there who know how to make drugs at home.
Most of the smuggled drugs are called generics because they are available when one needs it and they are said to cure the disease which are the same as the genuine drugs. Smuggled drugs sell like hot cakes especially in the rural areas and any kind of medicine is available in many cases some sellers do not need any prescription.
Thousands of drugs may fit in a small space and so it is sometimes difficult for law enforcement officers to know the existence of drugs even though they may do thorough inspection of the containers and many people who smuggle the pharmaceuticals do not usually carry medicines but elect to smuggle chemicals which are used to make the medicines. Smuggling of pharmaceuticals is a billion dollar industry and many countries go a step further to stop the vice even if they have to go to the source of the smuggling so as to stop the attempts of smuggling at the source and by so doing the sale are not able to sell the drugs to the intended countries.
Striving to stop the smuggling of drug may go along way if there was an attempt to educate the people about the vice.
